Jays Sign SP Tim Redding

The Toronto Blue Jays signed veteran starting pitcher Tim Redding today.  Redding, who will turn 34 in February, was once considered a top prospect coming through the Houston Astros farm system, Redding has pitched in 822.1 IPs over eight seasons and has a 37-57 record to go along with a 4.95 ERA, 1.49 WHIP, a career 0.2 WAR and 4.88 FIP.

Analysis: Well clearly he will be counted upon for next to nothing, this is a “fill out the spring training invite list” and nothing more.  He was half-way decent in 2003 in 176 IPs, 4.14 FIP and a career best 2.8 WAR. 

Verdict: Nothing to see here folks.

The team also announced the signing of left handed relief pitcher Bill Murphy.  Murphy is turning 31 and last pitched in the big leagues in 2009 for the Jays, appearing in eight games.
